So I am wondering how much better on graphics card is than the other considering the price difference.

ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5-V2 Radeon HD 7850
$219.99

vs.

XFX HD-687A-ZHFC Radeon HD 6870
$179.99
 
Solution
having all amd does not make any difference other than the amd overdrive...one centralised tool for the whole system tweeting and monitoring.
the gtx 660 is a little better than the 7850...a good choice indeed I would say.

I am fine with nvidia cards. In fact they are the only kind I have ever had (haven't tried Radeon yet). But I figured since my new motherboard/processes are AMD I would go for the trifecta. I don't know if it matters or not.

Is a GTX 660 that much better than the 7850?

If the GTX is the better choice I have an EVGA card in mind already.
